Liposuction in Bordeaux

Liposuction can definitively diminish localized areas of fat excess. 

These localized areas of protruding fat do not go away with strict diet and exercise. 

However, a properly performed liposuction will not replace an improvement in lifestyle. Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity. 

The principle of liposuction is to remove fat through very small skin incisions, with atraumatic and blunt-tipped cannulas. 

In practice, liposuction can be applied to numerous body areas: hips, outer thighs, abdomen, knees, calves, ankles and upper arms. Technical improvements have permitted to extend its action to the face and neck ( double chin and the oval part of the face). 

Liposuction can be performed, depending on the amount of areas to be treated, either under local anaesthesia, local anaesthesia associated with intravenous sedation or general anaesthesia. In some cases, regional anaesthetics, such as an epidural. 

The type of anaesthesia will be chosen after a discussion between yourself, your surgeon and your anaesthesiologist. 

Hospital stay   depends on the amount of fat removed. It can be short (a few hours) for small liposuctions under local anaesthesia, or longer (1 or 2 days) for larger liposuctions under general anaesthesia. 

Compressive garments should be worn for 2 to 4 weeks, this helps to avoid bruising, anemia, irregularities…

Resorption of oedema is after 3 weeks. With draining massages, the results will begin to appear, and skin will then retract completely.
